Today, during a live cast reunion hosted by Patton Oswald, it was revealed that Season 2 of The Boys will debut September 4 on Amazon Prime Video. Unlike last season, we won’t be getting the whole thing at once. Instead, only the first three episodes will be released followed by the next five debuting weekly.
The entire livestream is linked below, which includes a clip of The Seven’s newest member Stormfront (39:15) and the opening three minutes of Season 2 (48:11).

We’re big fans of The Boys first season, which did a fantastic job deconstructing the superhero genre while also paying it a twisted brand of homage. It’s definitely not for the squeamish (and occasionally crosses the line gratuitous absurdity), but the story and characters are fantastic.
Amazon’s description for Season 2 of The Boys reads:
“The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.”
